Visit of Ioan Pop and Frank Wilhelm

This week, we had two visitors from Germany at IFAE. On Tuesday, February 18, Ioan Pop from KIT gave a talk on “Ionizing Radiation: A Dominant Source of Non-Equilibrium Quasiparticles in Superconducting Quantum Circuits”. A day later on Wednesday, February 19, Frank Wilhelm from Saarland University presented the European roadmap for quantum computing with his talk “Quantum computing - state of play, prospects, and a European perspective”. We thank both of them for their very interesting presentations!

New Master student from Grenoble

Today, we welcome Barkay Guttel from Université Grenoble Alpes onboard. He is joining our team to work on superconducting qubits for his Master thesis. Previously, he did his BSc in Physics and Mathematics at the Technion — Israel Institute of Technology. His interest is quantum information and quantum computation, more specifically using superconducting qubits.

We are online!
